MANILA, Philippines – Nagtapos ang partisipasyon ng Pilipinas sa 5th China International Import Expo (CIIE) sa “high note” na may total sales and deals na nagsara sa record na $655.15 million.

Sinabi ng Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) na napagtagumpayan ng bansa ang target na nalampasan ang nakaraang taon na CIIE sales na $597 million, o 9.74%

“The outcome also sustains a five-year streak for the Philippines of consistently higher sales, year-on-year dating back to the Expo’s inception in 2018,” ang pahayag ng DFA sa Twitter.

Ayon sa Philippine Trade and Investment Center-Shanghai (PTIC), ang value ng CIIE sales ngayong taon ang pinakamataas din ngayong taon para sa partisipasyon sa trade expo “anywhere in the world.”

“Our trade and agriculture officials and exhibitors did a marvelous job,” ayon Kay Philippine Consul General to Shanghai Josel Ignacio.

“This stellar outcome also leaves no doubt about the robust demand for quality Philippine food products and agricultural produce in China’s huge and still expanding market,” anito sabay sabing “There is plenty of room to fill, and the annual CIIE is unmatched as a vehicle for our future promotion and closing those crucial deals.”

Sinabi pa ng DFA na “contributing to the outstanding results was the participation of a record high 62 food and food-related Philippine companies, and the spotlight trained this year by the Philippine government on coconut and specialty coffee.”

Ang CIIE ay largest import-themed exhibition sa buong mundo at nagaganap sa Shanghai tuwing Nobyembre. Kris Jose
